Into the Everfree [SFM] by argodaemon Into the Everfree [SFM] by argodaemon
So was going through the painstaking process of building a fairly large forest from scratch for (hopefully) my next video, and thought this shot was perfect for a picture.

Other then the smoothing of a few sharp angles on the models in Photoshop, this is straight from SFM.

Map consists of 250 trees (so far) and I added about 50 grass models for the picture to give definition and detail. Map has been in the works for a few days, but the picture took an additional 3 hours. Turned out pretty sweet, so I am not complaining. ^^

The base map is [link]. It may be a "desert", but it comes with 2 map files. One is the same map, but with grass. It is AMAZING for just custom building a map.

Sorry if it is a bit dark, but it helps suit the mood. :D

Aw I was looking for a map to make an animated Slenderpony short. Guess that will have to do. Good luck on the video. Give me a link and I'll see it.

It is all made in SFM as I have no idea how to make maps in Hammer. :D The dynamic lighting is specific to each scene, so it isn't a map-wide effect.

Love the touch of blue flowers in the lower left to remind the viewer of the Zecora episode.

That was actually a complete accident, too. ^^ The model I used just happened to have blue flowers. Not complaining, though.
